Acting as a social catalyst and torch bearers, these young cyber ambassadors would be working as police officers without uniform by sharing the responsibility of the local SHE Teams officers to safeguard the public.
“All students should be aware of ongoing cybercrimes, learn how to prevent these issues and create awareness on the same among other children and their respective communities,” additional director-general of police Swati Lakra, who attended the investiture ceremony at Mahboobia Girls High School, Gunfoundry said. Similar ceremonies were held in all districts across Telangana.
“I am excited to be a cyber ambassador. I got to learn a lot of things during the training like not to share OTPs, personal details, add or talk to unknown persons on social networking sites and even spoke to my friends and classmates on these issues,” said Bushra Hameed, a class 9 student of MGM Government Girls High School, Nampally, who is chosen and trained as a cyber ambassador.
